We are all very glad to see the end of the COVID-19 restrictions within England now.
The end of these restrictions does now allow us the opportunity to plan more definitively for the return of face-to-face graduations.
London Met still takes the safety of its students and staff very seriously and so we will be working with our various partners to ensure that we can deliver the safest and highest quality graduation.
Graduations normally have the luxury of a year in advance planning and the task we now have ahead of us is working with the Barbican (where we have always held graduation), Ede & Ravenscroft (our gowning and photography company) and many more services to try and get graduation back on track.
We are aware some institutions have been able to get back to normal quicker than others and this can be subject to so many aspects. Do they have their own space on campus? Do they have access to a venue that has the availability?
Please be assured that we are doing everything we can to get back to face-to-face graduations, and we will contact all graduating students and will offer graduation to anyone who has had their graduation postponed.
For those who were due to attend a summer graduation in 2021, we will be holding Virtual end of year celebrations.
Thank you for your continued understanding and patience.
Head of Enrolment & Graduation
